Larry Sumrall & Jackie Sumrall, Founders

Larry Sumrall graduated from Mississippi State University in 1969 with a degree in Construction Engineering Technology.  A native of the Laurel area, he worked in construction supply until 1970 when he established his contracting firm. Initially the company was established to be a commercial general contractor, but later expanded into industrial applications.  Larry is active in his community of Laurel and Jones County, and in the construction industry.  His involvement stems from his belief that he should give back to an industry and a community that has been so good to him and his family.  Because of Larry's commitment to quality construction, work ethics and customer service, the company continues its successful growth.
